    Is there anybody on here who's really into cars like me? If so what's your favorite car or your dream car and why? Or what would you like to do to your current car?

    Right now I drive a 94 honda accord, its modded a little bit but its nothing special. If I had the money I would turbo it and lower it. But no big dumb spoiler. My dream car is an Evo 9. I think its better than the sti. What do you think?

    '68 Shelby GT500 (Eleanor) would be my choice :)

    I did the Tuner thing for a while (w/ a '94 Honda Civic)... was a lot of fun and even more fun smoking much nicer and more expensive cars in a race :)
    ... But I love muscle cars at heart. However, living in New England makes it impractical to have one as a daily driver so I've gotta wait til I can afford one as a toy!

    Both very nice. I like muscle as well. And the old school hot rods. Like a 39 ford coupe. With a supercharged 454.

    I just sold my '00 Civic Ex with a Cervinis Sniper body kit, metal Z3 fenders, black halo angel eyes, STOCK spoiler, 17" HP rims, 2 Pioneer 12's, 900 watt pioneer amp, 2 sets of tweeters, 6.5" Kicker door speakers, 6X9 Fosgate rear speakers, AEM cold air intake, HP ceramic headers, OBX cat back SS exhaust, B&M short shifter, stage 2 Exeddy clutch.

    I've got an '07 GSX-R 750 with a header back Yoshi exhaust, B&E intake, and a Power Commander. Also, have a '07 CBR 600 with a Two Brothers slip on exhaust, Hot Body flush mount front turn signals, rear integrated LED brake/turn signals (it's my wife's bike and it's for sale).

    My dad gave me an '85 Silverado C10, 350 Edelbrock engine, lowered, dual exhaust, candy apple red with bucket seats. It's parked right now. I'm having some problems with the drive train.

    After selling my Honda, I bought 05 F150. It came with aftermarket dual exhaust (dunno what brand). I couldnt stand having a stock radio so I put a Pioneer media player (plays everything BUT cds), a set of tweeters, and a Boozaka 6" tube (biggest sub I could fit under the seat - I measured every possible set up).

    So, yes I would says autos (foreign, domestic, and motorcycles) are in my blood. I have an itch to customize which is my I love Droid phones. Root them and the sky is the limit. I'm expecting my first kid in February so this is the most expensive toy I get for a while.

    I would love a '69 Camero SS with a big block 572 chevy engine, bored out .030 with a hydrolic cam, flowmaster exhaust, shorty headers, holley 850cfm carb., 50HP shot of NOS, positive traction, and 4.11 gears. Just to name a few things but i love working on Chevys and i am a pretty much gear head torwards Chevy while also being able to work on Ford and Dodge. American muscle beats tuner any day in my opinion.

    Wow, practical or not, that would lure me away from my beloved VW Beetle TDI !!! Put a stout skip plate under it and I could run over all kinds of stuff!!

    I don't have a pic, but the new Bugatti EB 16.4 Veyron SS would be my dream car. 1200hp all wheel drive 0-60 in 2.5 sec and top speed of 268. Makes me drool thinking of it.
